SOURCE: convertible rear window separated from fabric top

This problem is very common and is known as delamination.
Use Urethane adhesive to reglue the window.
This same adhesive is used to install windshields.
The hard part will be to hold the window in place till the Urethane cures.
Prepare for that in advance.

I need to know how to get my rear passenger window in my 2005 vw beetle convertible back on it's track


If the glass fell down you need a new window regulator....take a chair with you to the VW parts counter so you can sit down when they tell you how much they cost !!

Last one I did was in a 2004 VW NB convertible..... $800.00 installed

I have a 2004 vw bug and the rear window came off track. And now i need to find how to take rear panel off so i can get to the window and put it back on track.


I take it must be a convertible? Open the roof and remove the rear seat pad and back rest. You'll see the rear quarter panel trim is one piece plastic! Remove the screws holding it in place and lift it up and lay it aside with the seatbelt extended. Unbolt, unplug and remove the speaker. There are 4 bolts that hold in the rear window lifter assembly, loosen the bolts and lift out the entire assembly and then correct the window problem! I advise you though to take it to a dealer as it is a very complicated operation that requires correct adjustments of the lifter assembly because the adjustments will definitely be out for the window to come off its position!!

2003 beetle convertible top detached from window


My problem has been solved. I contacted the VW Customer Service and spoke with an advocate. The advocate and my dealership reached a conclusion and VW has decided to replace the items to alleviate my problem at their cost. Sometimes, dreams come true. Good luck to all of you who have similar problems with your VW Beetle convertible. It took quite a lot of patience and determination on my part, but the VW advocate was sympathetic to my plight since I'd never taken the vehicle anywhere else but the dealership for all repairs. The repairs have not been completed yet, so I cannot say whether or not the dilemma is, indeed, solved.

Take a good look at wiring running in to door at hinged end. You may have to open up the loom enough to see wires. Look for an area that appears weak,kinked, or shows signs of where it bends all the time, you'll probably find a wire or 2 showing signs of cracks, or ready to break. Disconnect battery for safety before cutting.Cut wire(s) at weak point, strip both ends,slide some shrink tube down one end past stripped part, then solder together if possible, but if not available, a good **** connector if you have room, but also shrink tube it after you crimp it, for added strength & protection.
